Calling a Yisrael instead of a Kohen


[I've never seen this done, but:]

On Mondays and Thursdays in a shul with sparse minyan attendance, one may call a Yisrael for the first aliyah even with a Kohen present, assuming the Kohen permits it. This will not apply for Shabbat and Yom Tov, though.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 3:20)

Have a great day,
